the evidence on top of dna, that's what juries want to see and prosecutors want to have and defense attorneys dread. >> reporter: police already have security cameras up in some high crime neighborhoods of the city but don't monitor the video live. instead, they will review the tapes ifa crime is committed. again, this is all being discussed today so we don't have a timeline of when these cameras might go up or how many there might be. you're looking at one of the cameras now along market street. i have seen quite a few but chief suhr would like more and we don't know who would pay for them if approved. elissa harrington, kpix 5. >> you have been on market street all morning. what do people on the street think about having more cameras? >> reporter: just about everybody i spoke with actually is in favor of these cameras. i spoke with a business owner along market street and he told me he would actually like to see a camera every 10 feet. he says the more the better. back to you. >> all right. elissa harrington live in san
francisco, thank you. and new details on a gas leak that evacuated a south bay mall. pg&e is reporting that the gas leak near valley fair mall has been capped and the mall is back open for business. these are chopper aerials right now from earlier this morning while crews worked to stop the flow of gas in a parking lot on the north side the mall. construction crews working on that site hit a high pressure gas line just after 8:00 this morning. dozens of employees were forced to leave the mall as pg&e crews worked to cap it. >> after the line was capped, hazmat crews made sure there was no residual gas inside before giving it the "all clear." checking other news around the bay area, a san jose woman accused of stealing a car with a baby inside is due in court today. carla hernandez faces charges of kidnapping, child endangerment and auto theft. she allegedly stole an suv after the owner briefly left the car with the keys in the ignition and her baby in the
